All About ACE

The connections that link environment, energy and health are as historic and direct as the 446 bridges that crisscross Pittsburgh, the city with more bridges than anywhere else in the country . The 2017 Air & Waste Management Association's Annual Conference & Exhibition (ACE) will examine how leaders in industry, government, academia, and non-governmental citizen groups work together to improve community health and protect the environment. The Pittsburgh area is a great example of the amazing improvements in environmental quality and health that can occur when these groups are bridged together. Industry in this region has evolved to a diverse portfolio of energy suppliers, manufacturing plants, medical facilities and technology companies that are harnessing energy in sustainable and innovative ways.

Come join us as we advance the science of air and waste management and recognize the many bridges to environment, energy and health.
